Henry Churchill King to Jane Addams, December 9, 1907


December 9, 1907

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House, 335 South Halsted St,

My dear Miss Addams:

I am very glad indeed that you feel that you can accept the invitation for the Religious Education Association program, and I certainly do feel that from our point of view it is well worth the trip to Washington and return.

I dreadfully hate to give you up for the other two occasions; but I do not, of course, feel that I have any right to urge you beyond your own judgement; only, those it was possible to give you some payment for, and the Religious Education Associapossible to take time for either of the other two, we should, of course, be glad to arrange it.  You will, of course, remember that you can leave Chicago at 8 o'clock in the morning and reach either Oberlin or Cleveland for an evening address, getting away the same night for Chicago; or you could leave Chicago at 8:30 or 10:30 in the evening and reach Oberlin in time for the morning address on the 22d, and return the same noon, getting back to Chicago at9 o'clock. So that so far as trains go, the time shall not be greatly trenched so.

Always sincerely yours,
